I have a 4 GB memory card on my Lumix camera. I have downloaded all videos and photos to my iPhoto on my MAC, but the memory card keeps saying full. There is nothing on the camera as far as I can see. ...

Hi, did you click the option to erase the photos from the card after you imported them into iPhoto? It could be that the images are still on the card and that iPhoto has just deleted the directory.
If you are sure that the photos are all on your Mac then the best thing is to use the camera's menu and reformat the card.
I have made a point of NEVER letting iPhoto delete the pictures but I delete them manually in the camera once I know they are safe in iPhoto. However, I am finding that I am no-longer deleting the photos from the card - when it is full I put it aside and use a new one - they are so cheap now - way cheaper than film is.

I have a Panasonic Lumix DMC FX30. Why aren't there SD memory cards in 4gb or higher? Can I substitute any of the other SDHC cards?

There are no SD memory cards 4GB or larger because the Secure Digital standard limits card capacities to 2GB. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work in the DMC-FZ30. You will need to stay with SD cards 2GB and smaller.

How do you remove photos from the internal memory of lumix dmc-fz28?

You can erase them as you normally would when you have a memory card in.

To access the pictures in the internal memory, you need to remove any memory card that you have in your camera first. Then go to preview mode, push the trashcan icon and select "Yes" when asked if you are sure you want to delete the picture.

That's all!

You have to use a card reader either on your computer or an external USB card reader. Put the card in the card reader, open the recovery program, then select the drive where files are deleted, then press "Start" and wait for it to do it's magic.

You can search for "memory card data recovery software" on search engine (I used Google) and it would give you bundles of softwares and many of them would be free. So try and let me know if this helps :)
